This is a remake of my old "Something too Rare" shot which was lit with flashlights and window light. A lot has changed since then and I've learned a lot about both lighting and Photoshop. I am hoping this one at least beats the old version in score.

Well I am very pleased with how this turned out. Beat my old score, got my forth highest score, no comments about poor lighting, knew exactly what I wanted to photograph and actually did it. Thanks to everyone who voted and commented!

I'm surprised this didn't come in over a 6. This would be a good selling photo on a stock site. I can see this in a lot of motivational PowerPoint presentations.

Not subtle ;-) Nice job with the lighting, especially given the reflective surfaces and white-on-white here.

I like where this was going. Perhaps a different colored background to really make things pop.

I love it! Not only is green my favorite color (and this is a wonderful shade of green in your image) but this really does sum up my experience on this site :-D So it's a personally meaningful image for me.

Cute idea. I think a box that contrasted with the background in color (the bottom as well as the top) would have added a lot to this.
